DJ EZ will revive his techno and house alias, Elvin Zedo, originally conceived back in 2004.
The announcement was made by the acclaimed UK garage turntablist via a video posted to Facebook, in which he explained the genres his moniker focuses on have 'always had a special place in my heart'.
"I'm super-excited to let you know about my DJ alias, Elvin Zedo," DJ EZ said. "[It] was created in 2004 as an avenue for me to play house and techno, which were the genres I played at the very start of my DJ career.
"Those of you who have followed my DJ career may already know this, and may remember that I played house and techno under the name of DJ Easy O in the early years. Now the time has come for me to reconnect with the music of my roots."
Anyone looking to experience the new project first hand should note a 10-hour Boiler Room set this weekend and head to EZ’s Facebook for competition details.
